In 1931 when this movie was produced, many actors still stuck in the technics of the silent movies. In this film, text passages should help the viewers understand what's going on and give some idea about the story - which, by the way - is rather simple. Victor McLaglen was a great star in those days and played the main part with Edmound Lowe co-starring. Humphrey Bogart who played already with McLaglen in "A Devil with Women" was to appear in that movie.
Already in "A Devil with Women", Bogie thought that this movie could end his beginning film career because it was, Quote a financial and artistic failure with a stupid plot and mismatched actors Unquote (Darwin Porter in "Humphrey Bogart - The early years" 2003 The Georgia Literary Associaton). Bogie threatened to buy up all copies of this film and have them destroyed according to Darwin Porter.
This experience in 1930 may have been the reason why Bogie was cut out in this 1931 film and why he was frustrated not to be a co-star to McLaglen.
It is hard to understand in our days that a film like "Women of all Nations" could ever be released - the only reason was McLaglen who was a kind of hero in early "action" movies.
Bogie fans will be disappointed, as to my knowledge only bad copies of this film - without Humphrey Bogart - are existing.
